The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) offers a suite of university-level summer courses, designed to immerse students in the study of marine science, with a program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education. Founded in 1903, BIOS is a world-class ocean science research and education facility. BIOS summer courses in marine science provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to expand their studies into subtropical environments and/or to investigate topics in ocean science, which are not offered within the curricula of theirhome institutions. BIOS has quick and easy access to a diverse array of subtropical marine habitats which, combined with lectures, discussions and integrated field work and laboratory exercises, provide an optimal environment for experiential learning.Read more

Please share the attached flyer with students and colleagues you think might be interested. I think this is a great opportunity for a student looking for an interesting, cost effective summer field science course in a location that is exotic, foreign, and safe. There is the opportunity to study Portuguese language and culture alongside the science, and I even have a small amount of scholarship funding to help defray costs. It would be great to get another student from College of the Environment!Read more
